Colombia Exchange Rate

Colombia Exchange Rate

Exchange Rate in Colombia

Colombia's exchange rate from 2013 to 2022 was heavily influenced by oil prices, given the economy's reliance on oil exports. The Colombian Peso tended to depreciate over the last 10 years, particularly during times of low oil prices and global economic uncertainties. The 2020 pandemic further weakened the Peso due to reduced oil demand and a flight to the safe haven of the U.S. dollar. In 2022, the currency plummeted due to political uncertainty over President Petro's reform agenda, as well as rate hikes by the U.S. Fed.

The exchange rate ended 2022 at COP 4,810 per USD, compared to the end-2021 value of COP 3,981 per USD and the figure a decade earlier of COP 1,927 per USD in Colombia. For more exchange rate information, visit our dedicated page.
